Expanding its budget-friendly lineup, POCO has introduced the POCO C65 to the global market. This new entry in the C-series follows the C55, which debuted earlier in the year. The POCO C65, which seems to share its design and features with the Redmi 13C—a device that's also on the cusp of its release—brings several enhancements over its predecessor.
The POCO C65 boasts a modern boxy design complemented by a side-mounted fingerprint reader integrated into the power button for added security. The device's aesthetics are further highlighted by its dual-camera setup, housed within two prominent circles and set against a rectangular backdrop that sports the POCO logo on the right.
The smartphone features a sizable 6.74-inch display with a waterdrop notch, offering a resolution of 1,600 x 720 pixels. The display is capable of a 90Hz refresh rate for smooth visual transitions and peaks at 600 nits for brightness, ensuring visibility even under bright conditions. Additionally, the screen is fortified with gorilla glass to resist scratches and minor accidents.
For photography enthusiasts, the POCO C65 is equipped with dual rear cameras, including a 50MP primary sensor complemented by a 2MP macro lens. It also features an 8MP front camera, which is ideal for selfies. The camera software comes with a variety of modes to enhance photo quality and user experience.
